In honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d tell you all about this great book from Betz White, Sewing Green: 25 Projects Made With Re-purposed & Organic Materials. In the book Betz talks about choosing organically produced fibers, and reusing things you already have such as cutting up unwanted garments, and saving packing materials. What better way to help make a positive impact on our planet, not to mention engage your creativity and save money!
The 25 cute projects are beautifully photographed and include full-sized pattern pieces, making them super easy to follow. But Sewing Green is not just a project book, it contains a lot of great tips on thrifting and how to avoid some of the pit falls as well as featuring other crafters who bring an eco-friendly approach to their work. Sewing Green hopes to inspire you to choose sustainable or recycled materials for your future projects.
